Give tropical fish goldfish food

Aquarium Fish Food

Aquarium fish food is one of the most important topics to know about when keeping fish and a proper diet is essential. If you want to get the most out of your aquarium fish it is important to give them a variety of fish food. While you can give them just flake food, you should try to vary their diet with some of the different types of tropical fish food described below. Two or three small feedings a day is better than one feeding per day. Only put in as much fish food that the fish will consume within 2 minutes. Overfeeding your fish will lead to poor water quality and stressed fish.

Freeze-dried fish foods are a safe alternative to live fish food due to the treatment of these foods before the freeze drying process. Be extremely careful when using live foods (especially feeder goldfish) due to the diseases that they may carry.

Automatic Fish Food Feeder
These are good to use because they will dispense the same amount of food at specified intervals, usually every 12 hours. They can also be utilized while you are away on vacation.

Flake Fish Food
Flakes are easy to use and your fish will like it. Flakes usually float on the surface while the fish eat. If you have bottom dwelling fish like Cory Cats, you will want to use something like algae wafers or pellets that sink to the bottom. You can use flakes as the primary food source because it contains most of the vitamins, minerals and other nutrients that your fish need. They are also easy on your fish's digestive system. Start off by using just a pinch or two. If your fish gobble it up in less than 2 minutes, try another tiny pinch. Avoid overfeeding because this can lead to poor, cloudy water.

Also keep in mind that flake food does get bad if you've had it for a long time. Just imagine eating from a 6 month old box of cereal. So, it's probably best to go for the smaller flake food containers instead of the jumbo containers that will last for 5 years.

Brine Shrimp
Brine shrimp is a great fish food for getting your fish ready for fish breeding. It can also be used as an excellent treat for your fish. Use it as a supplement to the daily diet of flake fish food.

Black moor color change and death...

by frankengirl

My poor black moor changed overnite to 'silver' and stayed at the bottom of the tank all day. this morning it was gently resting in some aquatic plants unable to swim.
what happened?
i ran out of fish food and ran to the grocery store and picked up some tropical fish flakes.
did i kill my moor by feeding her this?
i feel awful.
the other fish in the tank which are a fancy goldfish and a feeder goldfish turned pet seem uneffected.
